We use Jira Software Cloud.
We'd like to be able to have a highlight color on text. So the text might be black (or whatever color), but it would be highlighted in a different color. Yellow, red, green, whatever.
Is there a Jira Jira issue for this that I can vote for and watch dispassionately for a few years while it gets ignored and accumulates a bunch of request comments?
There is no mechanism in either the default rich text renderer or the older wiki markdown renderer to set a highlight (background) color behind the text.
Do a Google search for "jira cloud text highlight" for the other times the same question has been asked.
The same Google search will also find the feature request CONFCLOUD-27894. Since both Jira Cloud and Confluence Cloud use the same page description language (ADF), editor and renderer, the feature request affects both products. If you search the Jira Cloud feature requests yourself, you'll find a number of equivalent feature requests for that product, such as JRACLOUD-72631
If I got your question right, it looks like you can do that by enabling the wiki renderer in your field configuration for that particular phrase text field.
Here is a previous question about that https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Change-render-on-custom-field/qaq-p/1774805
